Description
Sorrento inlay, Musical jewellery Box - Walnut - Second half 20th century
Italy

Amazing jewel of the Sorrento inlay produced after many hours of manual work by woodworking artisans.

It is a musical box inlaid in baroque style.

The edge of the carillon is made of rosewood and covered in Ferrarese walnut briar.

A splendid classic Sorrentino inlay covers the surfaces of the box: the inlay is made by piercing many layers of different woods, glued by hand foil after foil.

The interior of the musical box is covered with a soft velvet lining that makes it even more enchanting.

The melody of Neapolitan music (Torna a Surriento) effused by the carillon further embellishes this work of art.

Dimensions: 27x16 cm x 10 cm (height).
